Krispy Kreme’s Chocolate Kreme Cakes

Okay, so I was in a meeting last Monday. And I receive a call from our admin assistant, “Ms Jen, may box po kayo ng Krispy Kreme dito.”

And I texted her back: “Gusto niyo lang kumain no?? :)”

Thanks to one of our Ninangs at our wedding, I cooked Hainanese Chicken.

And since I put it on Facebook, a lot of people have asked for the recipe. That’s actually a first, really, because, as a lot of those people know, I.don’t.cook. Yep, that’s because my mom is a great cook…didn’t feel the need to learn anymore. (Until our cook left. Long story.)

Anyways, going back to the recipe–let me just say that it was easy peasy. Honest. (Wonder if it’s those “survival” instincts kicking in, considering again, I.don’t.cook…

Of Ice Cream

Last night, S felt like he wanted ice cream.  Old fashioned ice cream.

We had recently visited

S and I spent Friday night at Tagaytay.

He had a meeting Saturday morning and since the boys were sick, we didn’t take them anymore (yay, time for both of us!). We left Manila not too late in the afternoon to make sure we don’t get stuck in traffic (it’s a b**ch getting caught in traffic between the Alabang viaduct and somewhere near Mamplasan!).

We had dinner at Verbena in Discovery Country Suites, Tagaytay.

Here are some of the pictures I took with the help of our new SB-400 and Picasa’s “I’m Feeling Lucky” function—

Cooking During Holy Week

(X post from MomEx)

Nope, this is not about what to cook because of abstinence, it’s more like because the cook’s out.

Every year during Holy Week (or at least it feels like it), the cook goes on leave. Previous years, I got away with watching my in laws (mostly my father-in-law) cook our meals. Last year, I recall getting tense wondering what I could contribute, and for the first time, I made spinach mushroom cheese squares (which I can share next time).

I’m so proud to say that for the past two days, I’ve been cooking! On Monday, I made white adobo! (Forgot to take a picture of it, but I figure that I should have lessened the sugar in that one!) And on Tuesday, I made this…

What is it, you say? It’s PASTA. That’s it, JUST pasta. Hahahahaha! I sauteed garlic in some olive oil, threw in a can of crushed tomatoes, put in salt, crushed peppercorns, hot chili, rosemary. Made that boil and simmer and dunked in the (whole wheat) pasta.

Well, it looked better than it tasted but my FIL says I should never apologize for my cooking (hahahahahaha!). Tomorrow, I will do Hainanese Chicken. Let’s see if that turns out good!

PS — I did get lots of praise for this dish from one of the persons that matters the most to me—my son. He not only ate this that dinner, he ate it for lunch AND dinner the next day!

Creamy Spinach Dip

I just wanted to share with you this wonderful gift I got from a friend. It’s a creamy spinach dip that comes with melba toast. It was soooo good that even P ate some! (That’s good news because he doesn’t regularly eat his veggies.)

My friend, Amelia, makes these herself! You pop the dip into the microwave to heat it a bit, and put it on the melba toast.

Let me tell you why I love it so much. GARLIC! It had garlic. It was sooo nice and cheesy, and had garlic. It was fabulous!

If you guys are already salivating, call Amelia to order a box! 09175295121.

Here’s another picture of the box, only because we all ate up what was inside first, and forgot to take pictures! =P
